The Northwest Indiana Region had a critical shortage of available advanced manufacturing shell building space. Recognizing this need, The City of Valparaiso, Garmong Development Company and Garmong Construction Services formed a partnership which resulted in a flexible and expandable 80,000-sqft shell building. Berglund was awarded the project as general contractor. Just eight months later, the structure was substantially complete.
The building was designed and constructed to attract companies that need to be setting equipment within 60 to 90 days of an acquisition agreement. With 100% of the exterior site and building components complete, 32’ of clear height, nearly unlimited office and production floor layout opportunities, with permitting and zoning already accomplished; this site and building will afford a prospective owner an anticipated one-year projection advantage over a traditional green field design/construction approach.
